Glenmorangie // Highlands, Scotland
Glenmorangie Dornoch is a limited edition bottling inspired by and created for Firth Dornoch, the estuary right next to the Glenmorangie distillery. A part of the proceeds of each bottle sold goes to the Marine Conservation Society which protects the sea and the shores. The spirit itself is a blend of whisky aged in ex-bourbon barrels and lightly peated whisky aged in ex-Amontillado sherry casks.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask TypeEx Bourbon and Ex Sherry
"Centre stage is reserved for apples and stewed pears, as they highlight a light and delicate nose. Finally there’s a whiff of oak, accompanied by a subtle grassiness. The palate is not as fruity as the nose suggests, but still presents us with hazelnut, caramel and sugar cubes, as well as bitter oranges."
